Agency News

Tbilisi, Nov 14 : The ruling Georgian Dream party executive secretary Irakli Kobakhidze on Thursday announced that the parliamentary elections will be held on October 31, next year.

"Georgia will not call early parliamentary elections after the legislature has failed to pass amendments to the constitution on changing the election system, therefore, the elections will be held next October", Kobakhidze said.

Earlier in the day, the parliament failed to pass amendments, envisioning a switch from the mixed to the proportional system.

"Early elections are out of question. We should prepare for the parliamentary elections, scheduled for October 31, 2020. This is the agenda, according to which we should act," Kobakhidze told reporters. (UNI)
